Kiwi Kiss meets Demi Designs

Last Friday (August 1st) I had the honour of meeting my good friend Charlene in person. She is so sweet and wonderful and I only wish she had more time to hang out! She did however bring me some delicious paper to drool over.
Becky from Hemidemisemiquaver has been designing her very own paper for free online. All you do is save the files and print them off. My printer is currently broke down and I am trying to decide to repair or replace (I love my printer) Charlene was so kind and printed some of the Demi Designs paper to play with in the meantime!!
This is the first card I made with it. As soon as I pulled it out of the envelope I thought it would be a great match with Stampin' Up!'s new In Color, Kiwi Kiss. I trimmed the one design, called Zwinger, and mounted it on Basic Black. Then I used my nesties to make an odd kind of flower (the black and Kiwi layers) Then I cut the flowers from my cuttlebug and stamped it with black and kiwi kiss from the new Floral Frenzy Set. Then I used Spring Moss twill (which also matches this pattern paper nicely) and used it to make a stem and some leaves. I then made a triple layer scallop edge in 3 colors to stamp the sentiment on, added the brads from making memories, which also match incredibly well.

As a last touch I stayed in tune with my current addiction to using crystal effects (someone help me I can't stop!!!) and I filled in the flower with it. I like how the crystal effects intensifies the colors beneath it.

And as always, the inside stamped to match!
